February 07, 2019

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement on the passing of former U.S. Representative John Dingell (Mich.), the longest serving Member of Congress in U.S. history and former Chairman of the House Energy & Commerce Committee:

“John Dingell served our country long and well. He chaired a powerful committee and made it even more powerful. He considered everything his jurisdiction and proved it. Nothing was more dreaded by administrations or agencies than the ‘Dingellgram,’ which was the height of congressional oversight. John and Debbie Dingell have been great examples of a real partnership and were always dependable friends. Abby and I will miss John and are grateful for his incredible life.”
